on the korean peninsula and these almost daily threats coming out of north korea and reactions through the u.s./south korean alliance by way of last week, overflight of b-52 bombers and most recently b-2 stealth bombers, this is by many accounts different from what we've seen in the past. but i think in terms of one type of development that i would zero in on and, you know, emphasizing how it's different is the way in which north korea's walked away from these hot lines. there can be an interpretation that there's more symbolic to heighten the threat, but in an operational sense, the crisis management capabilities in the room within which the parties can manage crises or potential escalations that do happen, those spaces are drastically reduced when you do have these measures such as walking away and announcing null and void mechanisms that have in the past been quite pivotal. but the key thing here in the all of these developments, i think, is to look very carefully at a new leader in north korea who, i think from an outsider's perspective is probing the different parties around him p in th
